Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2CCA 2.5

Pros: Fast, made my own Fusion Drive on my iMAC 2009. It was installed in a Windows 7 machine until the user had trouble with the drive and decided to go with a 1TB platter drive. All it was that it needed was a firmware update. I have the fusion drive running for about 2 months now with no problems. I have it linked up to a 1TB with about 300GB of data on the total disk.

Cons: SSD needed a firmware update but that is to be expected with good quality manufactures.

Other Thoughts: Works great as a fusion drive in older iMAC 2009. Very fast and quick. had no problems with it since installing in a mac.

Obihai OBI100 VoIP Telephone Adapter with Google Voice & SIP

5 out of 5 eggs AWSOME - Free Phone Service Better Than Any Provider 04/18/2013

This review is from: Obihai OBI100 VoIP Telephone Adapter with Google Voice & SIP

Pros: Small little device, doesn't take up much room, but it will take up a port on your router. Set up was simple, you need to register it on obi's website to control the settings. After that, hook up your Google Voice account to it and your set. I have had it running non-stop for more than 6 months and have had no problems with it. I did however tell my router to give this device priority to bandwidth when needed because when I first set it up I had bad echos. After setting up QoS (Quality of Service) for this device the echos went away. Customizing the rules on the OBI device to not accept Anonymous or Unknown callers has reduced the number of calls from annoying callers tremendously. These settings will be set on obi's website and saved to your device. It has never failed on me once, I think 1 out of 500 calls I had a bad connection but that will be with any other VOiP service. Just hang up and dial back. No problems. You can have up to 2 sip providers hooked into this so you can get e911 (you don't get this will GV).

Second sip line will be useful if you have another provider in another country where you can dial 9 + your number which you can set in the settings for obi. I am going to start purchasing these for family so they don't have to pay $15/month on other contracts. After about 3 months it pays for itself plus Google Voice features beats anyone out there. Google Voice says its phone service will be free through 2013 so I am good for another year. It seems like Google will keep their service free for years to come.

You can have this run on the "lite" internet connections as a phone call only needs up to 128kb of bandwidth.

I am able to use my Canon MX310 that I bought at a box store a few years ago to Fax to and From using the OBI100 and GoogleVoice. Ran 10 tests and all passed with up to 20 pages to and from without any problems. I would not recommend the phone splitter but to actually connect and disconnect the phone and fax machine unless you get two OBI100s which I might end up doing because I am lazy =P

Cons: I guess the only con I can come up with is that I had to enable QoS or Quality of Service on my home router to allow the OBI100 priority to bandwidth. Even though this only requires 128k of bandwidth sometimes my pipe is full and I need to make a phone call. I would recommend that you check if your router has QoS before purchasing so you have the best experience possible. Most newer routers have this feature unless they are under $20.

Other Thoughts: Overall this unit is awesome, I would recommend to family, friends, neighbors, or anyone I meet in the street. There are some good forms you can visit on how to tweak the obi to fit your needs. These settings can be found in the Expert Section of the OBI website. Then to Voice Service and to your sip selection 1 or 2. The Parameter Name X_InboundCallRoute you can add the following Value->{(?|x|xx|xxx|xxxx|xxxxx|xxxxxx|un@@.|anon@@.):},{ph}
Which tells OBI to not accept calls from number with only 1 to 6 digits unknown or anonymous callers. Those with 7 digits in the callerID or an actual name will be allowed to ring your phone. =-)

Best place for technical help is going to be found great information on expert settings there that will fit what you need.
